Customizing Feature Lists

You can customize the Feature Lists to provide more or less functionality for WP Squared users.


With WHM’s Feature Manager, you can customize the options available to WP Squared users. By default, there are three predefined feature lists: default, disabled, and Mail Only.

Predefined feature lists

WP Squared & WHM includes the default, disabled, and Mail Only feature lists. These predefined feature lists determine which features are automatically assigned to new or existing feature lists.


The system grants WP Squared users access to the default feature list’s selected features by default. If you disable a feature in this feature list, the system disables that feature by default for all users using the default feature list. To override this configuration, create a new list and assign it to your WP Squared users.

Mail only

The Mail Only feature list provides WP Squared users access to only mail-related features, such as Email Archiving or Apache SpamAssassin™. If you are a reseller who only owns a mail server, use this feature list.



This predefined feature list is not intended for use with a WP Squared account or a package. Instead, assign a WP Squared account or package the default feature list, but define the feature you do not want available on the server in the disabled feature list.

The disabled feature list serves as a list of features unavailable to all users and feature lists on your server. This feature list will also override any settings changed in other feature lists assigned to users.

Create and edit a feature list

To create a new feature list or edit an existing feature list, perform the following steps:

  1. Choose one of the following settings:
  • To create a new feature list, enter the desired feature list name in the Add a new feature list text box and click Add Feature List.


    Choose an easy-to-remember name so that you can properly assign it.

  • To edit a feature list that already exists, select the desired feature list from the Manage feature list menu and then click Edit.

  1. Select checkboxes to enable features, or deselect checkboxes to disable features.

To disable a feature in the disabled feature list, select the feature’s checkbox.

  1. Click Save.

Delete a feature list


When you delete a feature list, the system assigns the default feature list to deleted feature lists’ packages and accounts.

To remove an existing feature list, perform the following steps:

  1. From the Manage a feature list menu, select the feature list to remove.
  2. Click Delete.

Zone Editor Settings

The default settings allow the WP Squared user to manage A, CNAME, TXT, and MX records. As the root user, you can restrict these settings by enabling or disabling packages in a feature list.

To give WP Squared users full access to manage their zone settings, enable the Email Routing (MX Entry), Zone Editor (A, CNAME, MX), and Zone Editor (AAAA, CAA, DMARC, SRV, TXT) features. (This is done by default.)

To restrict WP Squared users to only managing MX records, enable the Email Routing (MX Entry) and disable both Zone Editor options.


The Zone Editor (AAAA, CAA, DMARC, SRV, TXT) only gives the ability to manage TXT records in WP Squared.
